New X-Fi Cards!!!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I was looking around on newegg.com and I found a few new X-Fi cards.

They look promising.

New Cards:

Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102006
Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102007
Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Professional - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102005

The X-Fi XtremeGamer & XtremeAudio don't seem very special but what caught my eye was the XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro. It's like an XtremeMusic card but with X-ram.
Seems as if I'll be buying that card now.

So why is that? lol



These look very promising. Less expensive than the 1st gen and they look almost as good.

So can these, Shaj, they're just different variations on the older cards. Mr. Pink has the Fatal1ty Pro, he loves it.

^^Its true I DO love it.

And yea the 2 lower end cards are kinda lame I would say your better of with an Audigy at that price point. And the Fatal1ty Pro isnt a Xtrememusic with XRam but a Fatal1ty without a front panel.

The Extreme Gamer totally supports XRAM, I did not know that... So that card isnt half bad at all really.

DONT LISTEN TO NEWEGG REVIEWS

Great boost in FPS
Reviewed By: h2o.SilentCid on 10/20/2006 Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5
Tech Level: high - Ownership: less than 1 day


Pros: I didn't believe at first that this card can boost fps in games but I was wrong. I was getting additional 60-80 fps just buy installing this card in Counter-Strike Source. Plus if you using a stereo headphones it will add 9 virtual speakers into it so you know exactly where someone is at.

Cons: Couldn't find one

Other Thoughts: If you are looking to boost your system performance in games should try this.

See I like that, I wanted the Fatal1ty FPS when it came out but couldnt see spending that much too bad that there isnt much of a price difference between the 2 now.
